Well, I am thinking maybe in spring getting rid of the plow on my N. It just does not work that great, and it is so heavy that it makes steering REAL heavy. Can anyone think of any reason why I should keep the add on hydro system when I remove the plow? Don't know, thinking maybe just pull the blade off, and keep the frame, and the hydro, just in case. Is there any market for a snow plow off of one of these?

I would imagine you could sell it on E-bay. Try yesterdays tractors site to see if there is an interest.

It's off. After the third time getting stuck yesterday, I finly got sick of it, and removed the blade. The frame, and hydro are still on, but the balde assamblay is off. Realy an easy job. Three clips, holding three big pins, and it slipped right off. Just two quick disconnects, and the hydro lines were off.[the angle cyl is built onto the blade assambly, the lift cyl, stays on the tractor.


OMG it is a WHOLE new tractor. I love it. Easy to steer, will go almost anywere with out getting stuck. I tell you it was like buying a new tractor. Well, I will tell you, the blade is not going back on. As soon as I can get the rest of the parts off, It will be going up for sale.

Starting to remove all the pump, and frame work for the plow today. Some parts I am not sure if they are part of the tractor, or the plow. For now, the main frame will probably stay on. All the rear bolts are pretty rusted, and if nothing else, it will make a nice bumper for when I start brush cutting.

All ready was thinking of that.:D :D

I got to say, best thing I ever did. A whole new teactor.


Well got everything off last night except for the undercarage frame, and the pump bracket, and stinger shaft. Looks like the bracket has to come out before the shaft, bu the frame hangs on part of the bracket??? Also how does the pump shaft come out? Bolted on to the pully, or does it just slip out?

I don't know whether I would sell the blade. You never know when you may want to do some dozer work, etc. You said it come off pretty easily, so it should go back on just as easy. Just another implement.

You know I did think of that, but I have the Power wagon that will doze over the same stuff the N will. Also I have the blades for my Ingersolls. A 44", and a 54". I got the blades to spair. PLUS the sale would pay for repair work, OR a new attachment.:) :)

The shaft does not seem to have any set screw on the motor side of the shaft, and as this pictire shows, there is no way to but unbolt that hub, and slide it out.

So any ideas on how the shaft comes out? I thought it was just splined, and would slip out. Maybe it still will, but I don;t want to force it till I know for sure.

Also once I get the pump bracket off, should there be something in it;s place. Oor is that space just open then. Here is a shot of the area.

I am NOT looking foward to trying to get the motor side hub off.:cry: :cry: Not a lot of room in there. Plus the crank pully is a little loose, so I will have to snug that up also. PLEASE don't tell me I have to remove the front of the tractor.:cry: :cry:
